If the -'06 S80 forum isn't active enough for you, it isn't the fault of this forum or its participants.

Anyways... if anyone here is still "inclined" to give me ANY advice I would appreciate it.<p>I believe that some of the "R" owners have a great spectrum of knowledge on most makes of Volvos and cars in general and will be able to help or at least lend thier some of thier knowledge to me in the form of advice.

You could maybe:<br>shorten the body (+wheelbase) to make the drivin' more dynamic <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"><br>just had to say that, the S80 was NEVER ment to be somekind of Racer (like bmw will never make an M version of the 7serie, would be just a fat pig (euh...whale, for the last body) on the circuit).<br>

<I>Yeah I'm breaking the rules but there's a reason <insert lame excuse here>. </I>Doesn't change the fact that it is OT for this forum.<p>Could care less why you think it should be here. If I want bushing advice on my 240 and feel I should post it here, would you think it would be any more welcomed or tolerated?<p>Post in the general maintenance, iPd or S80 forum.<BR><BR>

Re: (Copeland)

Since you didn't bother to enclose a picture of the car, just some shots of small things that I have no idea what they are, I'll give you one piece of advice.<br>REPAIR THAT UGLY WORN AND CRACKED DRIVERS SEAT and ask a moderator to move this to the S80 forum where amazingly there ARE some owners that have modded their S80's

? ... man... I think I believe I read something from you like: "you **** R owners think you are ......?!?!?!?"....<br>I just wanted to hint you: it could be you bought the wrong car for your intention and a higher number doesn't always say it's higher rated <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> (I would rather own just an M5 any day above a 760iL <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> ).<br>EDIT:<br>not an uproar....just teasing you <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

I am dissapointed with some SS members parochial view. At SS "R" humor is often met with stodginess. I also refuse to geniculate to any habitual grouch; reguardless of their techinical merit or thousands of posts. <p>Your question is valid and polite.<p>Signed,<br>Curt the self appointed King of spray paint

Re: Need Advice! Pics and Vids Inside <----- (Copeland)

It'd be helpful to know what you've done to it already. I personally can't even view those videos you linked to because the page says the video is a private video. <br>In terms of mods, here's a good place to start:<br><A HREF="http://www.evolvecars.com/site/index.php?id=57,123,0,0,1,0&hashID=6cfc057e051e2ff2c13835d7470abaca" TARGET="_blank">http://www.evolvecars.com/site...abaca</A><p>Oh and get rid of the turbo badge please. It belongs on a Porsche 911 Turbo. Is that a Porsche? No.<p><br>
